I have a cool little tool to introduce to you today.
If you’re anything like me, you probably sign up for tons of email newsletters. I have ones I subscribe to that are about social media, some about shopping and deals, and some about cooking and food.
With the introduction of gmail tabs, my inbox is certainly feeling a lot more under control, because whenever I get something that’s sent through an e-news program, it goes either into my promotions tab or my subscriptions tab. That’s good news, because it means that I can deal with the most important emails in my main inbox, and then deal with my subscriptions later, when I’m the right headspace to do so.
However, I still probably have too many subscriptions. I recently tried out a cool new tool that can help you to get your inbox under control. Unroll.me goes through all of your subscriptions and lists them for you. You can then unsubscribe from them one at a time, or put them on a list, and Unroll.me will do a batch unsubscribe for you all at once.
What’s the rule for unsubscribing? If you haven’t opened something in 6 months, you should probably jettison it.
Check out this great video by my friend Steve Dotto on how Unroll.me works, and try it out for yourself! It was pretty painless, and I’m feeling a lot lighter, email-wise, these days.
